Life’s Just Beachy!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week I continue to bring the challenges for the month.

Apparently today is 'no socks day' ... So for our challenge today use an image that has bare feet.


I used the Lots of Pops Pop-Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. I pulled out an old stamp for my card today … the Bare Feet stamp is from Bugawamps.

As you can see I created a beach scene adding a few things you might find on the beach on the sand area of my card.


One of the things I love about this pop up dies is that you don’t have to use all the pop up pieces included on the die. For this one I only popped up the large centre pop up piece and the side pop up piece on the left side. where I added the pole for my sentiment.


Here is another view of the inside of my card, this time at a different angle.


Here is the front of my card, for this I used the MFT Transform-ables Say Hello die. I used the Clear Wink of Stella pen to add glitter to the hello portion of the die.

    What a wonderful image for the challenge, and it works so well with the dimensional format too. I think you have a lot of us wishing we were there!
